Okay, so…

I’d like to thank all of you for sticking with me.  Really, I’m not easy, I know that. Everyday I tell myself to post happy things on my blog, flowers, fairies, happy pictures of the sun and all kinds of lovely things and then I sit down and…well, you know…I don’t do any of those things.

I’d like to blame my constant ranting on the fact that my Master’s was in Women’s Studies and Political Science, but I don’t ever blame, and the fact is, I took those subjects because that’s who I am and I’m pissed off.  I’ve always fought for things, ever since I was little and yes, I drove my mother crazy.  Nothing has changed, other than the fact that I’ve done everything louder, more publicly, and with more to back me up.  I despise injustice.  I cannot stand to see people and animals abused, hurt, used and held back because others are mean or have more “power,” than they do.  I JUST CAN’T STAND IT!  I can’t NOT see it and I can’t look away.

Believe me, I’d like a day off, but that’s not going to happen.  I can’t look at the beautiful Cuneo mansion without thinking of the people who WORKED there just because they didn’t have as much money as the people who lived there.  I can’t stand the violence against women, children, animals and the planet.  I don’t know how to stop thinking about it…it’s everywhere.  I don’t know how to stop looking at the evil churches and what they do to people.  I hate the brainwashing and conditioning of cultures, all the things that make people accept abuse because it’s a tradition, like genital mutilation, being given away to someone, used, abused, stoned to death, starved, enslaved…for no other reason than. CLASS, lack of funds, or because of gender.  I can’t see why these horrific things have to continue.  I can see ways to stop them but there’s no way to bring about change because people aren’t willing to fight back and the status quo is evil and punishes those who fight against it.

So, I will continue to tell myself to put nice things on my blog, because I do like nice, happy things, like my sweet cats, flowers and all the rest but I’ll never stop ranting about what I see as the injustice of life and what it does to others.  Whole races  held back, held down, for no other reason than THE PEOPLE IN POWER CAN DO IT.   How can we ignore that?  How can we let it keep happening?

I’m going to eat some carrots now and relax.  I just wanted to thank you for following my blog and stopping in now and then.  I truly appreciate you comments and ability to keep coming back for more.  🙂  Seriously…thank you.

    Rant away if you need to but also see the beauty and perfection in so many other things around you. Let there be balance within you so there is balance without us all

  3. Don’t you dare stop ranting, Gigi! I don’t know about anyone else but I find my recognition and agreement very therapeutic. So there.

    I so understand you and identify with your feelings. Just today I saw a terrible photo on FB of unimaginable cruelty and it has been haunting me the whole day, yess, the entire day with only a few minutes break here and there when something distracted me. But I can’t save the world. I wish I could. HUGS. Heila

  5. So good to see someone else getting so pissed off!!Please keep doing it. I have only come across your blog recently, but I recognize a fellow tormented soul. I drive myself mad sometimes with my ranting but like you, I can’t get away from what I see, how I feel, and there just seems more stuff every day, haunting stuff. I just can’t stop getting frustrated and I feel such fury I have to get it out. I have to express it. Keep at it!!

    My mind & heart are with you. It seems so simple to live in a peaceful productive world, but not.
    I am taken by your passion for what & how I think. I am trying in my own way to express those feelings , but I am obtuse and you are exacting. TY!

    • Resa, you are absolutely wonderful and not at all obtuse. Your heart comes through each of your posts and all of your writing. You are filled with passion, creativity and compassion. I think you underestimate yourself. Whatever you do is enough and will change the world in it’s own way. You’re a great friend and I’m so happy to have met you.

    There is no one else like you, Gigi. You’ve got a lot of gusto! 🙂

    Rant on! Even though my gender is on the receiving end of a lot of what you write 😉
